Private Tour of the Mezcal Route with Ancestral Drinks

1 review
Discover pre-hispanic pulque and ancestral mezcal; agave drinks and the sun of the Guachichil desert.<br><br>Did you know that pulque and mezcal come from the same plant? In San Luis Potosí we have a grand tradition for the elaboration of these drinks that are a standard representation of our national identity. We will visit the communities that preserve this tradition and we will get to know the rural surroundings in the vicinity of the capital city.

Another great building with good information but in this case, even when under glass/plastic cases, they are covered with years of dust and dirt so you lose the color, the texture, the beauty of each piece. What would it take to open each case, clean up, then reseal them properly so the pieces stay pristine longer? The guards are a bit over-zealous and are on your heels the whole way around which gets a bit tedious after a while. Love that they have replicas you can touch (on any of the red pedestals). Great idea for kids and people who cannot see too well. From pre-Hispanic archeology to vice regal paintings. On the second floor is located The Capilla de Aranzazú 1586. A beautiful small chapel. Some websites say it closes at seven pm but it closes at six pm.

This is in part of the old convent of San Francisco, the Museum has a nice small collection of objects, but for me the high light is the Capilla de Aranzazú, which for those of us that like the Baroque, is a fascinating place to visit.

Nice little museum with some pre-Colombian artifacts from around the area and a stunningly beautiful chapel on the second floor. Free on Sundays.

Decent museum, free on sunday and wasn't too packed. Not a big place so it will be a quick visit. I probably spent 20 minutes but I rush through museums fairly quickly.

Of course if you are here as a tourist and visit museums, churches and chapels , etc. this is a must. What is different from other museums is that there are several fake(replicas) pieces you can touch through all the museum
